Tuesday Final Nationals: Mild ‘Containment’ Premiere Figures on CW

CBS led Tuesday night among total viewers (10.88 million), while NBC won among adults 18-49 (1.7 rating/6 share) and adults 25-54 (2.5/7). Continuing coverage of the first round of the “2016 NBA Playoffs” helped give TNT a prime time victory among adults 18-34 (approximately a 1.1 rating).

Even with retaining a mediocre 55 percent (in total viewers) from its lead-in “The Flash”, the series premiere of CW’s new outbreak/apocalyptic drama “Containment” (from Julie Plec of “The Vampire Diaries” and “The Originals”) still managed to better the retention of previous time slot occupant, the already-renewed “iZombie”.
